Deleting a row of data from any View cannot be undone.

System Views

The various BrightWork 365 areas, such as Requests, Projects, and Portfolio areas, each come with their own set of out of the box system views, in addition to any custom personal or system views you configured on your own. Different views will present a different number of rows of project information depending on view filters, and/or a different set of columns across the top.

  5. Click OK.
  6. Save the view with your preferred name and close the view configuration window to return to the app.

Create a Temporary Personal View

There are times when instead of creating a reusable "permanent" personal view you'd rather create a one-off temporary view. This temporary view will disappear after the page is refreshed.

  1. In the area of interest click on the Column options icon.
  2. Click + Add columns.
  3. Choose the columns you'd like to add to the temporary view and click Close.
  4. Click Apply and your temporary view will be displayed on the screen.


Views and Bulk Updates

It is possible to make bulk updates to certain fields in multiple records from a view screen using a couple of different options.
Note: Do not make edits to calculated columns such as the date column Current Finish.

Option 1: Use the Edit Option

Select multiple rows in a view and click Edit in the menu bar.

Option 2: Open in Microsoft Excel Online

Click Open in Excel Online from the Excel menu.
